How To Find the Right Roofing Contractor

July 01, 2022

Two workers installing a roofA roof installation, replacement, or repair project is a huge undertaking, and selecting the right team for the job can be intimidating. Roofing projects can be pricey, and you want to ensure you’re partnering with a trustworthy roofing contractor that will do the job correctly and stand by its work—you don’t want to be left high and dry! Thankfully, there are ways to find the right roofing contractor and ensure that your new roof is gorgeous, durable, and flawlessly installed.

Search the Internet and Check Reviews

When trying to find the right roofing contractor for your project, start by searching the internet. While it may be overwhelming at first, make a list of the top-rated roofing contractors nearest to you and read their reviews on Google or Yelp. See if there are any red flags or patterns in the reviews (for example, do multiple people say the contractor started the job and never finished?) Avoid any contractors with these red flags.

You can also reach out to friends and family for recommendations and add those to your list as well. After you have a list of contractors with great reviews, move on to their websites.

Check Accreditations

This can be done by researching the contractor’s website and checking which groups it is accredited by. It’s essential to see if reputable organizations certify and support the company. For roofing contractors, some of these may include:

  • Certified Contractors Network (CCN)
  • Better Contractors Bureau (BCB)
  • National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA)

Another good indicator that you’re dealing with a respected roofing contractor is an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. This shows that it is committed to delivering good customer service on top of excellent roof installations.

Ask About Consultations and Guarantees

Once you’ve confirmed good ratings and accreditations, call the contractor and ask about its consultations and guarantees. Find out if consultations are complimentary and what warranties the company offers (either on labor, materials, or both). Ask what happens if a customer isn’t happy with the outcome of their project. Cross the contractor off the list if it doesn’t offer warranties or take measures to ensure every homeowner is happy with their new roof.

A contractor that meets all the above criteria is the right roofing contractor for the job! With all these boxes checked, you can be sure that your installation will go off without a hitch and that your investment will be protected.
